The Maddest Soap Cake I Have Ever Made!

YES.... Here it is, I have never made anything quite as mad and crazy as this before and I must admit I like it.

My Harley Davidson Skull soap cake

And, for once, I remembered to take a few photos as it was being made, so here goes.

This is the skull in the process of being painted, a huge 200g skull of white cold process soap highlighted with burgundy mica

the piped red poppy flowers drying on little wax discs

The Harley Davidson Logo under construction, I wanted to write the whole thing but it was just too much to achieve freehand in soap so I decided to use the famous Harley flames instead

These are the two base cakes white cold process soap swirled with orange and black so hopefully each cut slice will look stunning

I then put it all together with white piped icing, added the poppies, pearls and some small piped black leaves that I highlighted with Burgundy mica - this is quickly becoming my absolutely favorite colouring and highlighting product it is stunning.  I am really happy with the results, a bit creepy but very eye catching.  I just hope the client in Germany likes it!

Now for some more detail of the finished cake.

I hope you enjoy this project, please let me know what you think, leave a comment!

New Christmas soaps to follow soon.
